Melbourne Day

melbday.jpgFollowing up on Zara’s post, tomorrow is Melbourne Day.

Wednesday 30 August, 2006, represents a milestone in Melbourne’s history, marking 171 years since the city’s founding – the day the first European settlers landed on the north bank of the Yarra River from the schooner Enterprize in 1835.

There are all the usual events for the day but what struck me are the deals they are offering at certain Melbourne venues.

    I’m going to try and go to the Observation Deck tonight. Hopefully it won’t be mobbed.
